A beautiful tale full of paradoxes
14 June 2004 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

A beautiful tale full of paradoxes.Imagine a film full of love affairs and not even a single sex scene in it !Well,such is the beauty of this great Hungarian film nicely shot by the legendary Hungarian cameraman Sandor Sara.One must just keep a thing in mind before starting to watch this film.It is not for all tastes.Those who have ample patience in dealing with philosophical tales should only proceed to watch this masterpiece.Zoltan Latinovits is marvelous as the aging Sindbad who aptly shows us that life is best enjoyed only when it is in constant movement.Watch out for a scene involving Sindbad eating numerous mouth watering delicacies.Sindbad is based on numerous short stories by Gyula Krudy.This film is considered to be a major classic of Hungarian Cinema.
